Feature CD of the Week

The Feature CD of the Week for this week is a disc that brings 6 great jazz leaders together to form a new group. It's The Jazz Leaders: Live, and it features six of the most exciting players in the world of jazz.

The leader is Dr. Bobby Rodriguez on trumpet, and there is Ricky Woodard on sax, 'the most dangerous man with a groove' Billy Mitchell on piano, Ryan Cross on bass, Bobby Matos on congas, and Paul Kreibich on drums.

On this album, they are performing all original material. The Jazz Leaders have created a fresh new sound, mixing hard bop, funky gospel, and Latin styles, all recorded live.

The level of skill represented by this group is evident as soon as the first tune hits. Let's all enjoy this feature.
